Tithe.ly makes it easy for you to add, edit, hide, organize, and manage the giving types people can give to. For example, you can create giving types for General Fund, Tithe, Missions, Building Fund, and more.

Summary:

  • Designations allow your donors to give to specific funds or projects at your church.
  • They also help improve the reports you see in Tithe.ly by clearly assigning every gift to a fund, even if the fund is General Giving or Tithes.

Donors will have the ability to set their fund/designation when using the online or mobile giving form as seen in the below clip:

First, navigate to the Giving Types:

  1. Log in to your Tithe.ly account.
  2. Click on the “My Churches” tab on the left.
  3. Click on “Edit Organization".

    4. At the top you'll see a green button that says "Giving Types". 

    5. You will see all existing funds/designations that have been setup.
